The Muse’s Gift Guide: Favorite Etsy Gifts Part 2

Muse's Gift

I think today we need a little more Etsy in our lives for some great unique gifts. Last week I introduced you to some fine Etsy shops which had some fabulous pressies for friends and family. This week, I’ll continue the series by introducing you to several more great shops that I simply adore for gifts!

Remember the most important rule of thumb prior to ordering from Etsy! Ask your Etsy seller if your gift will arrive in time for the holidays since many gifts are handmade on the spot this process takes some extra time so be sure to e-mail and ask.

Now take the jump for some great Etsy gift ideas!

Mrs. Tattooed Geeks is another of my very fav shops on Etsy! Filled with soy candles, lip balms, and many other funky treats you’re sure to adore the whimsical packaging on many of the goodies available at this Etsy shop!

My fav picks:

Now Squeaky Queen is absolutely an essential part of Holiday Giving! With unique soaps and perfume oil blends these are sure to appeal to your friend’s inner goth…or honestly anyone who loves cute bath and body goodies should squeal when getting a giftee from Squeaky Queen!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.
